A simple way to celebrate Valentines Day with young children


As you probably know I always welcome to opportunity to create a little magic for my children – so I thought with Valentine’s Day coming up I would make these simple wool felt envelopes as a little surprise.  I’m planning on adding some watercolour heart notes and maybe a heart chocolate.

These envelopes could be customised for so many other occasions – of course my mind instantly things of birthdays!  The perfect way to give a little birthday note to an older child or they could also be used for party favours/ bags. You’ll enjoy my book Magical Birthdays for Children if you are seeking birthday inspiration and wanting to create a more mindful and wholehearted birthday celebration.

If you’d like to make a heart garland like the one you will see in the video – simply follow the same process I used for the Felt Star Garland tutorial here.

Enjoy creating a little magic. x

Materials you will need: 

  • Wool Felt
  • Embroidery cotton
  • A button to close your envelope
  • An envelope of your choice (if the envelope is not the size that you would like to sew, use a photocopier to reduce the size)
  • Needles + Pins + Scissors
